A pretty large swarm of more than 200 earthquakes is currently hitting Alaska’s North Slope region. The seismic unrest was triggered by a M6.4 earthquake, 84km SW of Kaktovik, on August 12, 2018. This is the strongest-ever earthquake that hit Alaska’s North Slope region. Since then, more than 200 aftershocks have rumbled the area with several above M4.5 and one reported at magnitude 6.0 seven hours after the first large one. This is the second strongest-ever earthquake that hit Alaska’s North Slope region.

Alaska’s North Slope was hit Sunday by the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in the region, the state’s seismologist said.

At 6:58 a.m. Sunday, the magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck an area 42 miles (67 kilometers) east of Kavik River Camp and 343 miles (551 kilometers) northeast of Fairbanks, the state’s second-biggest city. The U.S. Geological Survey says the earthquake had a depth of about 6 miles (9.9 kilometers).

State seismologist Mike Westsays that the earthquake was the biggest recorded in the North Slope by a substantial amount. “This is a very significant event that will take us some time to understand,” he told the Daily News.

The previous most powerful quake in the North Slope was in 1995 at magnitude 5.2.

The jump from a 5.2 to Sunday’s 6.4 is significant because earthquakes rapidly grow in strength as magnitude rises, he said. A magnitude 6.4 earthquake is 15.8 times bigger and 63.1 times stronger than a 5.2 earthquake, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

That’s why at 6.4 this changes how we think about the region,” West said. “It’s a little early to say how, but it’s safe to say this earthquake will cause a re-evaluation of the seismic potential of that area.

Later Sunday, another magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit at 1:15 p.m. near the city of Kaktovik on Alaska’s North Slope, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The epicenter was (65 kilometers) southwest of Kaktovik, which has about 290 people.

The magnitude 6.4 earthquake that hit Sunday morning was felt by workers at the oil-production facilities in and around Prudhoe Bay. There are so farno operational concerns related to the earthquake, but the pipeline will be inspected.

The Alaska Earthquake Center says the earthquakes were felt across the eastern part of the state’s North Slope Borough and as far south as metro Fairbanks. The center adds that there are no reports of damage.

  1. I’ve searched for military base around Kaktovik Alaska. Bingo! There is a radar facility for US Air Force.

      “The heads of the Navy and Coast Guard are also stopping in Alaska.”

      Is this coincidence the swarm of earthquakes and all the US military tops came to Alaska in the same day?

      I myself this is NOT a coincidence. Do you remember? I found some information that between 11~12 and 12~13 nights of August, we could see many many space debris and space junks falling down at night. Yes, space war between US forces and Galactic Federation of Light including Agartha (Hollow Earth) are happening. Did you see any space debris falling down just like meteors? I didn’t, but I saw many space debris falling down in the end of last year’s space battle.

      • Look at US Air Force DEW line station formerly at Point Lay, Alaska.

        Wow! US Air Force have Direct Energy Weapon (DEW) against Agartha in Hollow Earth. But Agartha belong to Galactic Federation of Light. Many spaceships of Galactic Federation of Light are stationed inside Hollow Earth. I don’t think US Air Force can win over this war!

    I told you that Tanger Outlets sinkhole would extend because of the collapse of Reptilian Secret Underground Base under Tanger Outlets.

    So many brand new cars piled up in the flooded creek looked amazing!

    Why authority sealed and covered up all underground chambers and flying machine, Vimana? They do not want us to see and know about them. Who are the authority? You know the answer if you are reading my comments.

  5. If these earthquakes are not of a natural origin, then don’t bother looking to extraterrestrials for the source. just lay your eyes on the US military. Any new armaments being tested? What about nuclear weapons of any kind? I know the current president wants to use tactical nukes in battle, so maybe such smaller weapons were being tested secretly. I wouldn’t put anything past the military!
